Agnes Scott College joined the small, but growing, list of metro Atlanta higher education institutions that will conduct all of its classes online for the fall semester.

The Decatur-based, private, women’s college announced Monday afternoon it will go to a remote learning format, citing the recent increase of COVID-19 cases in Georgia.

“Over the past several weeks, COVID-19 cases have been increasing dramatically in many states, with Georgia reporting a seven-day average of more than 1,000 new cases per day,” Christine Cozzens, its vice president for academic affairs and dean of the college, said in a news release. “Nationally, we have also seen a sharp rise in the percentage of young adults testing positive. These sobering trends caused us to reassess our plans.”
